Jack Weinberg

Environment committee  The salient point is that the Government of Canada does not have the authority to dismiss ministers; the Prime Minister has that authority. That's the fundamental reason why this is out of order and also why I believe it's political mischief. The member did say that climate

Gordon Lloyd

Environment committee   on. I'm looking at your brief, Mr. Lloyd, and you provided seven points here. The first deals with the management of climate change. Then you dealt with the term “toxic” and the stigma it carries, the requirement to establish so-called “limits of quantification”, state

Gordon Lloyd

Environment committee   the whole issue of climate change, and so on. I would ask you to give consideration to attending those meetings, and we'll see that the members who aren't here get those invitations as well. Anyway, I'd like to welcome our guests.

Gordon Lloyd

Environment committee  If you want to tackle climate change, smog--with its asthma--and the host of other pollutants, like mercury, we need cleaner power production, and CEPA doesn't deal with that explicitly. That doesn't really answer your question in a fair way, but in a practical way, if CEPA

Environment committee  I know you're being delicate, but I need to understand it a little better, because the challenge that we have, again, is that....
